We had not booked & were told there was a space by the window. The restaurant was totally empty & only 1 other couple arrived before we finished. View is to die for , however food was disappointing. The muscles smelt really off but was assured that Spanish muscles smell like that after a few days but are OK :D

I was searching a different place for lunch while my wife was in the shopping mall and I found this place. There was nobody for lunch because the place is the 3rd floor with the lift and you can not find the way in if you are not directed, I was lucky. Anyhow at the roof, nice view I was... More

Try this dish, seared Tuna with Pistaccio coating. Amazing dish ! The decor in this restaurant is stunning and the views equally so. Silver service and an amazing wine list. Go visit .

Visited on our last night in Malta for dinner. The food was delicious, staff were very friendly and attentive. Although more expensive than other restaurants we visited during our stay it was well worth the extra for the quality of the food and the ambience. Highly recommended.

I had a seafood pasta dish and my wife a prawn pasta dish. For starter i had carpaccio which was nothing speciel. We had a local bottle of... More

Beautiful setting, excellent service and the food is simply outstanding.. in my opinion its one of the best restaurants on the Island and no doubt will recommend this restaurant to others and will be visiting them many more times, especially in the summer season where one can enjoy the amazing views besides the excellent cuisine.

We visited the restaurant for dinner. The location is first class and the inner decoration is simple and fine. The food is very average and the service was much below our expectations. I can summarize this retaurant as not better than other similar restaurants in this area. Just an average restaurant.
